Testing the efficacy of your desulfator:
The best way to test the efficacy of our desulfators is to have the battery tested for CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) and mili Ohms (mΩ) before installation. You can either use a multimeter or a digital battery analyzer. Over time, you will notice an increase in the CCAs and a drop in the Ohms.
How long does it take to fully desulfate a battery?
The above estimated durations are influenced by the following variables:
Battery Tip: When using an external charger, ensure that the charging amps on the charger is at least 10% of the battery's Amp Hour (Ah) rating.
Why CCAs & Ohms?
The actual reading of a battery's health is in its CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) or Ohms.
These two readings will contrast each other. CCAs measures the ability of a battery to start an engine. When sulfation occurs the build up of sulfate crystals will increase the resistance (Ohm) in the battery which in turn reduces the CCA.
In most cases, the voltage reading remains the same whenever the battery is charged. So voltage is not always a true indication of the battery's condition.
